Getting stripped of the Greek citizenship02 September 2018

According to the famous Article 19 “A person of non-Greek ethnic origin leaving Greece without the intention of returning may be declared as having lost Greek nationality”. Although it was stated that the reason of losing the citizenship will be with the intention of not returning back, the Greek citizens of the Turkish minority were stripped unfairly, for only because they went on holiday or went to Turkey with related reasons. These Turks are now still in a ‘stateless’ status.

When it is considered that the number of stripped citizens is about 60.000 –almost half of the total population of the minority- it is exposed how the incident is tragic.
